Your pet chinchilla should be given a dust bath at least twice a week to keep its fur dry and healthy. A good bath house should have a bottom that allows complete contact between your pet and the bath sand to ensure thorough cleaning. Living World®’s Chinchilla Bath House has a unique spherical bottom design that allows complete contact and helps prevent messy baths by keeping the sand inside the bath house. The Chinchilla Bath House also has a removable cover for easy cleaning and a transparent tinted top. Made of solid, durable plastic, the Bath House fits most wire cages. It can also be used as a nest. Note that after your pet has finished its bath (20 to 30 minutes of bath time should be enough), remove the sand from the bath house so that it will not be used as a toilet.
